Japan Trend Shop, an online Japanese retailer, is a one-stop shop for every amusing, confusing, and WTF-worthy product you never knew existed. And that includes some pretty weird and wonderful beauty gadgets. Here, five of the weirdest, most wonderful ones I could find and you can actually buy!
Don’t just sit around wishing for a wider, squishier face—take action with this “cheek muscle training” tool that allegedly stretches your skin to prevent it from sagging. Setting aside the fact that the silicone muzzle makes you look like a human blowup doll, we’re not sure we want to use something that claims to expand our face. (We’ll leave that to Mother Nature, thank you very much.)
For the low price of $308, you can buy yourself a fancy little contraption that manually pries your painful ingrown toenail from its nail bed with two hooks and a tiny crank. Proceed at your own risk with this crazy-scary tool. Or better yet, call a doctor.
Based on its design, the only thing more terrifying than this stretchy mask is a wrinkled face, apparently. After five minutes a day, the Faceweaver claims to stretch and tighten the skin and facial muscles for a younger, more radiant you. It’s also great for robbing your local bank.
The brush on this makeup tool swivels back and forth to draw a crease along hooded eyelids. We’re a little distracted by the fact that the brush appears to be a plastic, pizza-cutter-like wheel that you dig into your eye area, which seems more harmful than helpful.
Meet the hands-free Shake Weight for your face. Just stick the end of this little vibrating gadget in your mouth and let the intense pulsations magically melt away your excess fat, fine lines, all signs of aging, that scar you got as a kid….
Kind of crazy things, don’t you think?
